Moor Pool Heritage Trust
Community projects (Social)
Moor Pool is a small ‘garden city’ area of Birmingham built in early 1900’s inspired and funded by a Quaker called John Nettleford. Nettleford wanted to develop a healthy neighbourhood in Birmingham; it’s an area of 500 houses in an area of Birmingham called Harborne no more than 2 miles for the city centre. Their ambition is to convert the main builders yard building into a community hub – called the Nettleford Ecology Centre, which will facilitate the local primary schools and community use.
We intend to empower people and support the personal development of disadvantaged individuals, by financing businesses that address specific social objectives. Lending in this sector is to for and not-for-profit employment programmes, youth help centres and integration programmes, among others.
